James Brown was the personification of the “American Dream.” Born into bitter poverty in 1933 in Georgia, beginning in 1956 “Mr. Dynamite” had over 74 hits in the US alone. Only Elvis did better. James Brown represented what may well be the greatest and yet most contradictory career in the history of pop. His most enduring invention was undoubtedly the music we now know as funk. In the mid-sixties, James Brown ignited a pop music revolution with the release of “Papa’s Got A Brand New Bag.” He followed through with classics such as “I Got You”, “Give It Up Or Turnit A Loose”, “Sex Machine”, “Super Bad” and many more, effectively bringing the whole thing home.
